Jane Fide

Centre Head

I manage the Centre, staff, volunteers and programme. I am also a cancer support specialist and offer emotional and psychological support to any visitors in the Centre or on the telephone.

Maggie’s is important as we are here to see anyone affected by cancer which includes carers, family and friends. Visitors feel they are not alone and are inspired and feel empowered by our buildings and the programme we offer.

Matthew Dicks

Clinical Psychologist

I provide a psychology service, which involves assessment and therapy on a one-to-one basis, and also run various groups. These tend to be either psycho-educational, therapeutic or support groups. My professional interests include Mindful Meditation and Bereavement.

Maggie’s way of working is a unique approach that is all about empowering people, which helps them to feel more in control of their lives. It’s important because people affected by cancer need a place to go where they are understood, and I honestly feel that every day we are making people’s lives better.

Samantha Richards

Cancer Support Specialist

As well as facilitating a number of group sessions, I also spend a lot of my time speaking to people one-to-one when they have dropped into the Centre. Being able to spend time with people in this way, to help them understand what they’re going through and offer support, is the best thing about my job.

Maggie’s provides a place of calmness for anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis. Whether they are taking part in an aspect of our programme, talking to someone about their diagnosis, or simply just being around other people, Maggie’s is an inviting, safe and peaceful environment.

Gaynor Raine

Cancer Support Specialist

I am here to provide support to people coming to our centre. This can be chatting with visitors who pop in for a cup of tea or signposting people to other parts of the programme. I also see people individually, as well as facilitating groups and courses, such as Stress Management and Improving Sleep. My background is in nursing with experience in chronic pain and end of life care and helping people who have conditions that are difficult to live with.

I love working at Maggie’s as it is such a special place, providing a warm welcoming safe haven for anyone affected by cancer. As well as getting support from various members of the team , our visitors often meet other people who are facing similar challenges, and sharing their experiences together can really make a difference.  The best thing about my job is when I see people grow in strength and confidence, despite being affected by cancer and all the difficulties it brings. 

Caroline Hockley

Nutrition Advisor

I have a very busy and varied role at Maggie’s, as I work at two physical Centres (Cheltenham and Oxford) as well as the Online Centre. I offer nutritional advice and recipe ideas through my group workshops, as well as more tailored consultations and an online blog.

I really enjoy every part of the job. Maggie’s gives such a wide range of support to people with cancer and their families, it really is unique and I’m so happy to be a part of that.

The food you eat is vitally important to your overall health and wellbeing (although I’m bound to say that!).

Anna Mason

Centre Fundraiser

My main focus is to raise both funds and awareness for Maggie’s Cheltenham. This involves assisting our existing supporters with their fundraising activities, as well as connecting with new supporters in the local area.

Maggie’s is important because we have the time and patience to give all the support each individual needs. Not only is the person with cancer supported, but their family and friends too. It makes all the difference in a person’s wellbeing to fight cancer.

Callum Campbell

Fundraising Organiser

I support the Fundraising Manager and the fantastic network of people in the community who support Maggie’s by volunteering and fundraising. I give advice to supporters who want to organise fundraising events for Maggie’s, promote fundraising activity in the community and through social media, and process various types of donation. 

The best thing about my job is the people I work with. Whether it’s the staff, visitors or volunteers, I get to work with brilliant, passionate people everyday for a charity that does amazing work.

Maggie's is so important for people who have had a cancer diagnosis, and their loved ones, to have a friendly, non-clinical space where they can receive the support that they need.
